For twenty years, we have lived and traveled the world. We are often surprised and inspired by the food we have eaten along the way. From the first apple tarts in France, the Pecorino cheese in Tuscany, Weiss Wurst in Germany, Espada (scabbard fish) on the island of Madeira, to Hong Kong, Thailand and China, we have learned new flavors and techniques to add to the outstanding food of the American South. — At Plates, we hope that you will enjoy some of our favorite international dishes combined with our regional southern flavors. Join us on a new culinary journey that is globally inspired and locally produced.

    From the cocktail to the dessert - so delicious. Sitting outside was the best. Server was really great. Getting free parking was perfect. So glad that Plates Kitchen survived COVID.

    Our table had the Flat Iron steak, leg of lamb, and grilled chicken Alfredo. It was all excellent, as well as the dessert. We ate inside, so minimizing the street noise. Waitress was an excellent server, engaging and upbeat. Definitely will go again!

    Very nice. Menu on line was a little more extensive than in actuality. I enjoyed my vegetarian dish. Although the vibe was fun, it was a little hard to talk, but fun at same time. Husband thought pork shank was pricey, but good. Glad to see they made it through the pandemic!

    My friends and I had a wonderful brunch experience at Plates this weekend. I enjoyed the quesadilla with chorizo, on recommendation from our very attentive and friendly server, in addition to the brown sugar cinnamon iced latte. Both were on point! I can’t wait to come back again. Thanks for a great experience!

    What a wonderful meal! We went for our anniversary and they brought us complimentary champagne. We were a party of 4 and got the charcuterie board, and duck appetizers plus a meal for each of us. We all took bites of everything and cleaned our plates. There was no room for dessert but they sounded delicious! We had the opportunity to meet the chef and chat with him. We asked how he got such thick pieces of salmon and he explained that he orders the whole fish. You could tell it was extra fresh and he cut the perfect fillet! The sauce on the scallops was mouthwatering! The pork cheek melted in your mouth and the pork chop was cooked perfectly to keep it nice and juicy. We will definitely be back! A new favorite spot for sure.

    Once again, Plates Kitchen never disappoints! I started out with an amazing cocktail entitled a “Good Decision”. I then enjoyed the market salad, which was presented as if it were prepared to be displayed in a culinary journal. The roasted Salmon was cooked perfectly, and delicious. One doesn’t have to start your dining experience with the same cocktail as I did but, it’s always a good decision to dine at Plates Kitchen. Thank you, to Justin, David, and their entire team!

    The brunch was delicious and the service outstanding, with a warm and relaxed atmosphere that is rare in a hip restaurant with a somewhat elevated menu. Loved the airstream out front where the coffees are prepared, and the very chill attitude toward modifications of anything on the menu. Favorite new spot in Raleigh!

    We were very impressed with all of the food, but especially the vegetarian and vegan options. Most restaurants serve bland vegan and vegetarian dishes and instead focus all of their creativity on meat dishes. It was really nice to find a restaurant that wants to provide the same kind of artistic creativity with BOTH meat and vegetable options. Excellent

    Not very impressive. Food was just okay. Saw a gray dish brought out to another diner and orders the same, but it looked nothing like their dish. Service was pretty slow and they were not busy enough to warrant that. Won’t be back.

    Birthday Brunch, it was good the value for the money is good. There was a gentleman playing guitar on the curb about halfway through our meal , it was nice kind of caught off guard but fine, the waiter disappeared alot. It was multiple times we had to sit and wait on something we needed instead of enjoying our food, besides that everything was nice, will definitely eat instead next time the flies were in abundance that was kind of annoying but we’ll blame that on nature!

    I had dinner here for the first time. It is a fabulous experience all around. Cozy, comfortable, and calm on a Saturday night.. the antithesis of Glenwood right outside the doors. Our server Rose was superb. Attentive, communicative and helpful with the menu. We started with the arugula salad with peaches and goat cheese paired with some sparkling rose. It was a great start. Finished with the sticky toffee dessert which did not disappoint! Great place, highly recommend!
